About the author
Edward Granville Brown is an English scholar who was born in 1862 and died in 1925. The most important book he has written about Iran is the history of Iranian literature. Brown was associated with the intellectual elite for his mastery of the Persian language and his knowledge of Islamic literature and philosophy, as well as the principles of Zoroastrian and Babi beliefs, which continued until the Constitution and beyond.
The book “One Year Among Iranians” is the result of Brown’s trip to Iran in 1887, about nine years before the Constitutional Revolution.
According to him, he spoke Persian very well before this trip and the description of the conversations that he wrote in this travelogue shows that he knew our language much more than everyday conversations. For example, in Tehran, he learns the principles of Sabzevari’s philosophy from Mirza Asadullah, and in Shiraz, he has a literary conversation with two sons of Vesal Shirazi.
